packing during a move

Importance of packing during a move

The packing is probably the most important step in logistics

If the price of your move seems too expensive, or if you simply want to save money for your on-site installation, we’ve thought of everything. Indeed, we have thought of a special service, where your involvement in the loading and / or packaging of your goods can lighten your bill.

To pack your belongings, it is recommended to start as soon as possible. It is best to start with the least useful, which you may not be able to use before your departure (clothes out of season, craft materials, etc.)

You also need to be organized. Be methodical when packing together goods belonging to the same family (clothes with clothes, dishes with dishes) to make it easier for you. Consider writing on each box a number, content, destination address, and especially your name.

It is strongly advised to pack your fragile objects carefully, especially with bubble wrap. Glassware and dishes can travel safely. Also remember to close the cartons with scotch tape, and indicate on it the mention “Fragile” as well as the top and bottom. If you have stored them, it is recommended to use the original packaging of your products.

To save even more money, you can also load the container or truck yourself. The container is used for volumes above 15m3.

For the latter, we offer you two possibilities:

  • The truck equipped with a crane to place the container on the ground to make its loading easier. It is especially recommended for bulky goods and if you do not have any material handling equipment.
  • The standard truck, where the container will be at 1.5m from the ground. It is more economical if you have material handling equipment.

Be logical in your cargo: begin with your furniture and appliances, glued to the walls of the container with one of the straps. Stack your boxes from the heaviest to the lightest to avoid damaging them.

We modify our packing services according to the nature of the goods being transported. At Siam Relocation, we provide a wide range of services that include packaging:

  • Single packing cartons
  • Cartons with straps
  • Packed cartons
  • Wooden pallet
  • Wooden box
  • Bubble packaging
  • Metal housing

The appropriate equipment

To pack your belongings carefully to secure your international move to Thailand, you need to be well equipped: cardboard boxes, wardrobe, bubble wrap, adhesive rolls, mattress cover, blankets … You can buy kits for removals in Thailand. Very reasonable prices. Prefer the original packaging (if kept) for household appliances and electronic devices (TV, computer …)


It may be that to save even more on the price of the move you want to load the truck or the container by yourself.

Siam-relocation is very flexible, for a volume less than or equal to 15m3, you will load a small truck, for a volume greater than 15m3, you will then load a container.

Loading container

We offer you two loading possibilities for the containers:

  • The container truck equipped with a crane to place the container on the ground to facilitate its loading. This service is recommended if you have large personal effects and do not have any material handling equipment.
  • The standard container transport truck, the container will be at 1.50 meters from the ground. If your personal belongings are not bulky or if you have efficient material handling equipment, then this is the most economical solution.

Have your loved ones help you, to save time and efficiency.

Use common sense and logic in the cargo, begin with appliances and bulky furniture, which you will place along the sides, with a strapping if necessary for tall and narrow furniture. The heaviest cartons will be positioned at the bottom, the lightest in height.

Tip 1: To pack and load, book your loved ones for a day.

Tip 2: Look at the weather, and avoid a rainy day for loading. If it rains on the day of loading no panic:

Divide the roles:

  • 1 person in the truck, to avoid wetting the floor …
  • 1 person in the apartment or the house, not to dirty everything …
  • And the others who shuttled … by staying outside.

Then, depending on the rainfall, inter-change roles often …
